Post tutorial RSS How to make StarCraft II run in a Lower Resolution then 1280x720

So, this will explain how to make StarCraft II run in a lower resolution then what it can actual support! There will be pictures.

Posted by on - Intermediate QA/Testing

So, to do it first you need to put StarCraft II in windowed mode.

Next you will need a separate program to run in 640x480 mode. (if thats what you want to do)

If you don't want it that low you can just set your desktop resolution to a lower setting then 1280x720.
That should be about all you need.

Basically, the reason for it to be useful for sc2 to run in a lower resolution then that is for some people that may not actually be able to support sc2. at least 30% of the requirements come from that minimum resolution. So, by having it at like 640x480, then the cpu requirement is like 1.6ghrz instead of 2.2ghrz.
